Reading Age Calculator

This is a reading test that will give an estimated reading age for your child. Please be aware that this is just a tool that may point to the age category of books that your child should be reading. It is only suitable for children who can read words independently and are confident in blending and segmenting (For help with these terms see the reading resources section of readunite).

How to use:

  • Find a quiet place for you and your child to go through the test which should take a maximum of 15 minutes.
  • Click on the start test button.
  • Ask your child to read each word in the lists provided and you then select the box to say whether they got the word correct or incorrect. The word must be correctly pronounced and do not give your child any help. Once you have reached the end of each list, a new list will be automatically generated. There are 10 lists in total.
  • if your child incorrectly answers 10 words in a row, the test will end and their reading age will be shown.
